Welcome !

Swing LocaL — connect gLobaL ! Greetings, Business is beautiful when it’s a vehicle for serving the common good. At GEC, we are committed to creating an economic networking platform that will forge not only local, but cross-border relationships with the underlining theme of ‘giving back to society’- An initiative that would replace corporate globalisation with a global network of local living economies. We are all a part of a corporate puzzle, connecting pieces throughout the journey and getting one step closer to realizing the bigger picture each time. Like a puzzle, opportunities come in different shapes and colours, but in the end everything fits & connects. So let’s keep moving, keep connecting & together we will be part of the biggest humane corporate network in the world, not only expanding our business but also giving back to society. The GEC Open is becoming the fastest growing golfing platform of our time, where passion meets profession and profession meets people! This year, GEC Open is growing bigger with tournaments in over 17 countries including 19 of world’s best golf courses to connect more then 2000+ leaders in our ecosystem. Join us for a world class, luxurious golfing journey and experience what it feels like to be a pro on tour! See you on the greens!!

The Global Enterprise Connect (GEC) Open journey began in Dubai in 2014, expanded to 5 countries in 2015, 10 countries in 2016…is poised to set foot on the most beautiful courses and touch the hearts of participants in 16 countries, 19 exclusive golf courses with over 2000+ c level executives from 800+ global organizations. Thus truly mapping the Eastern hemisphere and poised to be the biggest corporate golf tournament that the region has seen. What makes the GEC Open stand out from other tournaments is the unique blend of sport, networking, humanity and charity that has not only won the hearts of organizations across the globe, but also sends out a clear message that humanity will always be at the helm of what we do. ‘To give back to the society’— this simple yet profound thought kindled the passion to establish GEC Open as the ‘Magnum Opus’ of Global Enterprise Connect. Here, we are today! As GEC Open 2017 is set to showcase on some unbeatable and unconventional turfs, the stakes have just got higher and so has the fervor amongst a global audience. The journey has only just begun…Join us as we build relationships for life!

ass die Cleven-Stiftung die Auma Obama Foundation Sauti Kuu als Mit-Begünstigten für ihre Veranstaltung

ewählt hat, kommt nicht von ungefähr. Beide Stiftungen haben das gleiche Anliegen: Kinder und Jugendliche

ei der Gestaltung ihrer Zukunft zu unterstützen. So gibt Dr. Auma Obama, Gründerin der Auma Obama

oundation Sauti Kuu und internationale Vortragsrednerin für die Themen soziale, wirtschaftliche und

mweltpolitische Nachhaltigkeit, sozial benachteiligten jungen Menschen eine Stimme und unterstützt sie

arin, ihr Leben selbst in die Hand zu nehmen. Der ehemalige Metro-Manager Dr. h. c. Hans-Dieter Cleven

kussiert sich mit seiner Cleven-Stiftung indes auf die Gesundheitsförderung von Kindern. Vor mehr als zehn

ahren rief er die Initiative �fit4future“ ins Leben, in deren Rahmen das Cleven & Auma Obama Invitational

attfindet.

üchtlings-Krise ebenfalls Thema beim Cleven & Auma Obama Invitational

m Rahmen der Veranstaltung wird Dr. Auma Obama eine Key Speech halten und über ihre Arbeit mit

enachteiligten Kindern und Jugendlichen informieren. In einem Dinner Panel am 14. Juni 2016 diskutiert die

chwester des US-Präsidenten außerdem mit Dr. h. c. Hans-Dieter Cleven, dem CSU-Generalsekretär

ndreas Scheuer und weiteren Gästen über die Flüchtlings-Krise und damit verbundene mögliche

ösungswege.
